In this blog post, I want to share with you three great photography spots I found in the Nikko area.
The JR Station Bridge
In Nikko, there are two train stations, the Tobu Station and the JR Station. Both are located next to each other, but at the Nikko JR Station, there is a passage that let you cross the train tracks, From there you can get excellent picture opportunities with a beautiful landscape background.
There is a quiet and pretty park between the famous Nikko Cedar Avenue and the Tobu Line tracks. I like this spot because you get to watch a lot of trains, and it is easily accessible.
Yunishigawa Onsen or Akayuo Bridge
This place is by far my favorite spot to shoot trains in Nikko.
It is quite far from the main touristic area of Nikko, but easily accessible by train (45 min). Get to Yunishigawa Onsen station, and from there you'll see a bridge that crosses the river. You can't miss it!
That's it for my first 3 best trainspotting spot in Nikko. I will be posting new areas eventually. Make sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel and my Instagram account for fresh stuff about photography in Japan.
